Without exception dyslexia-friendly books published by Barrington Stoke get off to an exciting start and maintain the impetus throughout, with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter.  The plot is clear, the characters appealing and there are plenty of visual clues, as dyslexics like to run a story like a video in their heads.
